ODA is proud to be offering a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program to help grow and strengthen the skills of our community.
ODA in conjunction with its Corporate Partners brings you Webinar Wednesdays – a CPD based one hour webinar program, held on the last Wednesday of each month (Feb – Nov) on a variety of industry related topics curated to help strengthen and expand our community's skill set. Webinar Wednesday events are available to Non-Members at a cost of $55 or FREE for Qualified Members. A selection of topics will also be FREE to Affiliate and Student Members. Attendees of these live events will be allocated the advertised member CPD points.
Due to immense popularity, the addition of our Minibar Monday program offers a variety of shorter 30 minute sessions to supplement your developmental journey. Minibar Monday events are available to Non-Members at a cost of $35 or FREE for Qualified Members. A selection of topics will also be FREE to Affiliate and Student Members. Attendees of these live events will be allocated the advertised CPD points where applicable*.
(*Please note that not all Minibar Monday sessions are points based. See individual event details for point allocation information.)
The carefully selected topics of all webinars and workshops are designed to grow your existing expertise outside of what you have learned in the workplace or during your Certificate IV in Optical Dispensing course. As covid restrictions ease, our face-to-face event options will also grow, so be sure to check back regularly for topic announcements and release dates.
For ODA Members, a currency certificate will be distributed to those that have completed 10 CPD points each calendar year. On top of the educational benefits of the program, the currency certificate is a great addition to present to a future or current employer to show relevancy and up to date knowledge in the industry.
